AUTHENTIC JAPANESE FOOD!!! – I have absolutely fallen in love with this place! Being born and raised in Japan, I often miss the taste of home and come here every chance I get! My favorite is a meal which features broiled fish, miso soup, rice, pickles, sashimi...the works! A VERY traditional TRUE to Japanese meal! How refreshing is it to get your miso soup WITH your meal instead of as an appetizer!

I love that it's not "Asian-Fusion" but still has a few "specialty" rolls for people who like more generic Japanese food and it also features a Hibachi grill. This place is definitely for the ones who want to know what a REAL Japanese dining experience is like without Americanizing the whole culture! Even being greeted with "Irasshaimase!!"

I talk about this restaurant to all of my friends and would recommend it to anyone and everyone!

Boring hibachi, mediocre sushi – Quality is not as good as Benihana. The hibachi chef was really bored and sloppy, but the food looked good. I ordered sushi, and I call it mediocre because there were no special rolls and I wouldn't say it tasted neither great nor horrible, but I wouldn't host "Sushi Night" here. Seating took a moderate amount of time, we went around 6 on Tuesday and it took about 15-30 minutes to seat 6.

husband's daily refuge – The cooks are amazing and the food is great! My husband eats there so much the chefs know him by name! If you are looking for an exciting way to dine, sit at the Habachi table and have a good time.

My favorite sushi ever – This is a hidden gem in Metairie. All of their sushi is among the best I've ever had. I'm a crunchy roll lover and they use fresh tempura inside every roll along with the tempura shrimp. Their cream cheese roll and eel roll are also out of this world. they always have something special for the day - be sure to find out what it is and try it!

Suburban sushi haven that is quite the catch for fish fans who also like people. – The Scene
This former chain pizza site has a pleasantly informal feel and a loyal following. Choose from tables near the windows, a wall seat in the minimally decorated dining room or a stool at the bar (our favorite).

The Food
The sushi bar is a hive of friendly activity and a great place to learn about the intricacies of the fishy delicacy, but the menu also offers a range of fried, grilled and otherwise cooked Japanese specialties. On a recent visit, the chef recommended the albacore sushi: delicately carved white tuna atop a pat of wasabi-spiked rice, finished with scallion, zippy chili paste, lemon zest and a drizzle of lemon juice. The intense flavors interact perfectly with the smooth, cooling fish. It is difficult not to order about 10 more on the spot.
